Lino Monteiro's rating of the film Alice in Wonderland

Alice in Wonderland captures the whimsical, zany charm of the book. It doesn't boast a consistent and emotionally gripping narrative, nor should it have to. It's the personification of a childlike fanciful vision, mutable and readily amazed at all that's going on at the same time. All characters are likable and memorable and the visuals are pretty interesting. I do find it a bit uneven, but it's wonderfully wondrous.
